The Mazda lineup is no stranger to awards and accolades. Superb design, performance, and technology make the Mazda bloodline worthy of recognition -- and now the 2018 Mazda CX-5 and Mazda MX-5 Miata can add the New York Daily News' 2018 Daily News Autos Award to the shelf. This is also known as the DNA Award, partly because it's a helpful acronym, but also because the recipients of this award embody the "DNA" of their respective segments.

In other words, only vehicles that meet the requirements that are the core attributes of their segments are even considered for the award and only the ones that go above and beyond with exceptional engineering and value can even hope to win it. So, if you're looking for a small SUV or a slick roadster that checks off all your boxes and exceeds expectations with superior design, we invite you to explore the Mazda CX-5 and Mazda MX-5 Miata.

The new CX-5 adds its DNA Award to a list of other accolades such as Car and Driver's "10Best Trucks and SUVs" and New York Daily News' "Best Small SUV." It also gained attention from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Properly equipped, the CX-5 earns the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK rating.

The 2018 CX-5 also enhances efficiency with its cylinder deactivation technology. By shutting off the two outside cylinders, the CX-5 can improve fuel economy and performance. This is a rare feature; Mazda is the only automaker to offer cylinder deactivation technology on a four-cylinder engine in the U.S. The MX-5 Miata features excellent balance and retuned suspension that strengthens the connection between car, driver, and the road, making for a truly thrilling driving experience.
